The Raw Food Solution

How to Create Vibrant Health with a Raw Food Diet

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Raw Food Solution: How to Create Vibrant Health with a Raw Food Diet not only teaches readers about the basics of a raw food diet, but also tells a compelling story of the author, Mizpah Matus, who once struggled with binge eating and potentially life-threatening conditions, and found healing through a raw foot diet. She hopes to encourage people who may be in similar situations.

Mizpah Matus, nutritionist and gourmet raw food chef, uses the Raw Food Solution to instruct readers on how to follow a raw diet safely, pointing out many of the areas that people often misstep when it comes to switching entirely to raw foods.

She also aims to educate people on the potential of finding a vibrant life on a raw food diet, saying "Your energy field begins to resonate in harmony with your true nature," when on a raw food diet.

The danger of cooking of food, she says, lies in the fact that, 'when you eat foods that are no longer in their natural form, you [your body] cannot rely on your instincts to guide you.' She says this is because research has shown that cooking our food can destroy 50% of the protein, 70-80% of the vitamins and minerals, and up to 95% of the phytonutrients.

The author suggests a simple foundation of raw fruits, vegetables, and sprouts with small amounts of soaked nuts and seeds either in basic combinations, blended or juiced.

Some of the benefits Matus says a person on a raw food diet will experience include high levels of health and awareness, a well-nourished body with plenty of nutrients, and weight loss without calorie counting or portion sizes.

The author also includes a sizable collection of recipes and a 7-day meal plan to get readers kickstarted on a raw food regimen.

DIET and NUTRITION

The author suggests a simple foundation of raw fruits, vegetables, and sprouts with small amounts of soaked nuts and seeds either in basic combinations, blended or juiced.

She goes into detail about how much of each type of nutrient our bodies really need, such as fat, protein and carbohydrates; and also includes a sample 7-day meal plan to give readers a true idea of what eating raw in real life really looks like.

She also includes an entire chapter of recipes to inspire raw dieters toward variety and vibrant health.

EXERCISE

No proposed fitness plans are included, although the author claims the diet provides followers with boosted energy and clarity to perform tasks, including exercise.

CONCLUSION

The Raw Food Solution: How to Create Vibrant Health with a Raw Food Diet is an in-depth look at what it looks like to follow a raw food diet safely and correctly.

The author stresses the fact that may people approach a raw food diet without having all of the information and resources they need to go about it correctly, which was one of the main reasons she felt compelled to write the book.

The book is well organized and seems very well founded. Although the concern stil remains that a raw food diet probably just isn't for everyone as it eliminates all cooked foods and can be a very drastic lifestyle change.

However, especially for those looking to try the diet to improve their health or to alleviate food-related health conditions, this book seems like a tremendous resource.
